Windows 7: Cannot Activate Windows 7 Pro

That is correct for an elevated command prompt. Does it have C:\Windows\system32 as the prompt path like below? Your first screenshot had your user profile path instead, so that was why I thought you were not opening an elevated command prompt.

The activation phone number is different per location. Be sure to use the 1-800 number for your location so that the call will be free.

Holy Christ I am activated . I called the Microsoft Activation Center on the number I posted before. They were extremely helpful.

I was able to activate by typing in slui 3 in the search box and followed the instructions.

It took about 30 minutes because I had a bad phone connection with them but otherwise it went great.

PLease post a FULL MGADiag report so we can confirm the results - your initial report was incomplete, and only showed that the system could not have been legally activated at the time, as the Key in use was the Default Key (which can never be activated).
